There has been a tremendous change in the climatic conditions in the past few decades. The amount of carbon dioxide has reached a level where the house and the buildings are also filling with it. In order to reduce the level of emissions of carbon the materials used for construction have been changed. The FRP / GRP profile and Moulded Gratings manufacturers have given sleepless nights to the other manufacturers but good night sleep to the ones who reside in these buildings. The reason is that with the use of profiles the climate changes do not affect that very much as they usually do.
Properties of FRP / GRP profiles
High Strength: Strength of FRP is higher than the structural steel on the basis of pound for pound. FRP has been applied to buildings, sub-floors, platforms and walkways.
Light Weight: Weight of FRP is 25% lighter than steel and 70% lighter than aluminum. FRP are handled, lifted as well as transported easily into places.
Anti Corrosion: Due to its anti corrosion properties, FRP will never rot and are resistant to the variety of corrosive elements. This is the only feature that makes FRP a good selection in chemical plants, paper mills, water plants, structural near salt water and sewage treatment plants for outdoor and indoor structures.
Electromagnetic Transparency: FRP are used for making antennas because it is transparent to microwaves, radio waves, and other electromagnetic waves.
Non conductive: FRP are less conductive to electricity and heat.
Dimensional Stability: FRP’s coefficient of thermal expansion is somewhat less than steel and aluminum.
FRP / GRP profile manufacturers use FRP in following areas:
- Oil and Gas
- Fire Equipment
- Water / Waste Water
FRP pultruded square tubes are used widely for cooling tower, cross arm, chemical processing, waste water treatment, electricity and utility. These FRP tubes are made by FRP / GRP Profile Manufacturers.
